Tiger Trout Records
  

A very good quality recording. A different sound capture than some of the current recordings which tend to have more bass overhead. I think this is a very good representation of the sound I heard that fine July evening. The band started earlier than I expected (like 7:45 PM, or something), and I nearly missed the beginning. My DAT recorder caught the last 0.5 seconds of the 3 Stooges Intro. A bit of a bummer, but at least it didn't go into Tom Sawyer. The sound quality improves after Tom Sawyer, after I had a chance to catch my breath and make some adjustments. Rush was on top of its game the whole night, and seemed to be genuinely appreciative of the audience's undivided attention and enthusiasm.

To me the highlight was Dreamline -- the band's engine really started to kick into 3rd gear during this song, and the crowd ate it up. During the solo, the camera focused on Alex, and his expressions and energy had the place erupting (not to mention he absolutely nailed the solo). It was one of the most intense concert experiences I've ever witnessed, and was worth the price of admission alone. The second treat, in my humble opinion, was seeing the smiles on Neil's face (which the camera also caught) during Alex's La Villa Strangiato rant. It was truly the happiest I'd ever seen Neil in about 10 years, and the vibe was really heart-warming.

There is a good bit of "woohoooo"-ing on the recording, and also a few poorly timed interjections from some overly-imbibed dudes around me. But I was not in a position to harsh on anyone's enjoyment of the night.? Likewise, I hope you enjoy this recording as much as I do.

Thank you's to Darryl C. who sent me his mics from CA out of true generosity, and also to James B. for the very cool artwork to make this set complete.
